California On Location Awards COLA Winners for 2012

Senator Ron Calderon (30th District) and Assemblymember Felipe Fuentes (39th District) were among the honored guests to attend the 18th Annual California on Location Awards (COLA) held in late October at the elegant Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena. The state legislators, who authored the bills which extended the very successful California Film and Television Tax Credit program for two more years, joined forces again at the gala to present the Public Employee of the Year Awards which acknowledged the top federal, state, county, and city officials to have worked with productions around the state in 2012. COLA is the signature event of the Film Liaisons in California Statewide, the professional association of film commissioners from around the state which works closely with the production community to ensure that productions are running efficiently and to the benefit of their communities . The formal event, emceed by veteran TV actor Lorenzo Lamas, honors the top location professionals and production companies to have done exemplary work in features, TV and, commercials. For more information about this COLA year’s award winners and festivities, the Red Carpet pre-show and more: Top honors went to location manager Chris Baugh, for his accomplishments on “Argo.” Most of “Argo” was shot in California as a direct result of the state film and television tax credit program.

The Placer-Lake Tahoe Film Office and Placer County has been a staunch champion of this well received film incentive legislation that has strong bipartisan support. Within the first two years of the tax credit program Placer County hosted locations for three productions that qualified for the state film and television tax credit: HBO’s “Cinema Verite,” “Jackass 3D,” and the Disney film “The Muppets.”
